‘I am currently undertaking a year in industry, where I’m hoping to gain as much experience as I can working on live briefs and developing my knowledge of design in the real world.
I have just finished an internship at Linney Design in Nottingham. Here I worked on a range of projects for brands including Monster Energy and the Post Office. This has definitely allowed me to develop the way I work, and will undoubtedly benefit me when completing my final year.’
‘I wouldn’t say my work has one distinct characteristic, as I like to explore different styles and influences to create new opportunities. Importantly this keeps the process exciting, as I want every piece of work to have its own identity. This is why I like being able to work on such a wide variety of projects, as for me one of the greatest satisfactions is being able to enjoy the designing process, and producing a piece of work that you, as the designer can also appreciate.
I think it is this, which makes me really value a strong concept behind a piece of design and is something I try to implement in my own work. Of course this doesn’t mean that I want every bit of work to be deep and meaningful, but I like being able to see where a design has grown from.’
